Driver training

​​Prepare your instructor training course curriculum

If you are applying to become a instructor training facility, you’ll need to prepare a curriculum and have it approved by our driver education programs advisor.

How to get started

You need to build a course that feels right for you and your students while meeting ICBC standards and requirements.

You can take your existing course and turn it into an ICBC approved course, or you may build a new course.

Course planning requires some thought about what your students need to learn and the planning of specific lessons.

Develop an overview of your course

Create yourself a course overview by answering these questions:

  • Where will you instruct?

  • What content or information will you teach?

  • How will you divide the time into lessons?

  • How will you schedule practical and classroom training?

  • What methods of instruction will you use for each lesson or activity?

  • In what order will you teach the topics?

  • What resources and materials will you use?

If you are currently teaching this type of training, consider what you are doing now in your training course, what content and teaching practices meet the requirements and where you may have to add information or change how something is being taught.

Submit your lesson plans

You'll need to submit detailed lesson plans that clearly outline required content information and describe how the course will be taught.

Refer to the application and approval requirements for a list of required curriculum material.

Provided with the application package, is a sample lesson plan. Start by reviewing one of these samples for ideas on how to prepare your own lesson plans:

If you are applying to become a Class 1-4 or 5 instructor training facility, you’ll also need to complete the Curriculum Comparison form. This form is used to show that your course subjects and the time allotted meet the requirements of Schedule C of the Instructor Training Facility Agreement.
